Big news around Brownstoner HQ: After many months of planning, Brownstoner Philadelphia launches this morning. With its incredible architectural history and passionate residents, Philly has the two key ingredients for a successful Brownstoner community. With Gabby Warshawer, a three-year veteran of Brownstoner Brooklyn, at the helm and a handful of local contributors in place, we hope to do exciting things in the City of Brotherly Love. We urge you to check out the site and, please, take a minute to shoot an email to your friends and family in the area.
In related news, you may notice that things look a little different around here. With the help of the crack team at Six Apart, we’re pleased to debut an updated look for Brownstoner. Not too much has changed: The headlines are a little bigger, we’ve added some shortcuts for spreading stories via Twitter and Facebook, and we’ve tried to bring the neighborhood archives into greater prominence.
In the future, we hope to start having some overlap between the Philly and Brooklyn sites where appropriate. Most importantly, we plan to introduce a shared Forum, where posts that are not geographically specific can share feedback. At some point, the renovation blogs may be co-mingled too.
We look forward to your feedback on both sites. Please kick the tires and let us know if you see any problems. Thanks for playing.
